4-piece NYC-based band Gooseberry announce their debut EP Broken Dance, due out May 6th, and share the single “Sleep”.
Gooseberry, a coming together of many different sounds that meld indie rock, jazz, and soul, create a sonic landscape that is uniquely theirs. The single “Sleep”, being the first offering from the EP, perfectly demonstrates what the group is capable of. The song, designed to feel like falling into anxiety, plays heavily with textures, sounds, and genres — the track starts off calm, but quickly builds up into a bombastic, riff-heavy track that the band aptly describes as “film noir with fangs.”
On “Sleep”, the band says, “the story of the song follows one’s train of thought when an idea is just out of reach. You search and prowl and dig and strain and yet nothing comes, even when the answer is right in front of your face.” An electric, constantly evolving track, “Sleep” creatively blends together the juxtapositions of sounds in a veritable feat achieved solely by the talent and chemistry of the group.
